PBS American Experience presents (2008) The Lobotomist, the gripping and tragic story of ambitious doctor, Walter Freeman and the desperate families who sought his help, and the medical establishment that embraced him. This one-hour film features interviews with Dr. Freeman's former patients and their families, his students, and medical historians, and offers an unprecedented look at one of the darkest chapters in psychiatric history. In the 1940s Dr. Walter Freeman gained fame for perfecting the lobotomy, then hailed as a miracle cure for the severely mentally ill. But within a few years, lobotomy was labeled one of the most barbaric mistakes of modern medicine.
